Review for Betty Crocker’s chocolate chip gluten free cookie mix

family000 110 (2)  family000 114family000 115 (2)I’m a newbie in the gluten free world, but not so newbie in the special diet world, so every time I find something that makes my life easier I’m more than happy!

When I saw this box at the store I was so happy, but at the same time I had my doubts about flavor and performance.  Because on top of needing a gf cookie I also need it dairy free and egg free.  So I had to substitute butter with vegetable shortening and eggs for vegan eggs (click here for vegan egg recipe).

A very crafty Christmas


family000 088 I’m not a blogger with a super big budget, extra time and big pretensions… scratch the last one, to be honest I do have big pretensions, lol.  So, that being said I have a budget to stick to, but I still want Christmas decor I can post on facebook or instagram and feel proud of.  But I have to do it in real life not in Pinterest life. That may be a little bit of extra pressure, but if you were my friend you would know I thrive in pressure 😉

Now, I’m not saying this is the most beautiful decor in the world, but I’m saying that giving the circumstances I came up with a totally different Christmas decor from last year and I think it came up pretty ok.

This is my to go recipe simply because this is not only an easy recipe, is flour free and is versatile!

Now… this is a well known recipe, but the fact that you can replace peanut butter with sunflower butter and that it works with a vegan egg makes it absolutely amazing for me and my family’s dietary needs.

This cookies are soft and yummy, the kids love them and they disappear instantly.

The vegan egg

In my house we have egg allergies so we can’t always cook with eggs, and this little recipe has made my life so much easier.  It allows me to grab almost any baking recipe and just substitute the eggs for flax seed eggs.

I have used the baking flax seed egg for pancakes, chocolate cake, strawberry cake, gluten free cakes, banana bread, pumpkin, sunflower and chocolate chip cookies, gluten free muffins, etc. And the cooking flax seed egg for meatloaf, veggieloaf, meatballs and veggieballs.

So if you ran out of eggs, don’t want the cholesterol in your life or have an egg allergy, this is your holy grail!

2 tbsp flax seed

2 tbsp flax seed

add 1/8 tsp baking powder

for baking add 1/8 tsp baking powder


I have used this recipe for recipes that need a maximum of 3 eggs.

add water

+ 3 tbp water


mix and let rest for 10 min

2 tablespoons finely

First Review


fall park dayI don’t even want to call this my monthly review, because truth is I’ve been inconsistent with my daughter’s son rise therapy.

A lot of times I have felt awkward, not in the sense of feeling awkward with her, but with my self.  I can’t seem to be creative enough while playing and at times I don’t know what to do… how to build an exciting game or even how to feel excited.  There come times when I feel extremely sleepy inside the playroom.  And times where I have just been sick.
